“Fantastico!”
Reviewed 20 November 2011

I echo all of the sentiments of the reviews prior to ours and they were part of the reason why we booked a weeks stay at Casa Roca Caribe. We were not disappointed! Enough can't be said about the value of the rental and how hard Jimbo works to make sure you have everything you need. Towels and water are replaced before you even have to ask, but unlike a hotel, someone is not knocking on your door first thing in the morning to do it! My favorite thing was being able to spend every morning enjoying a cup of coffee on the patio watching the rising sun and ending the day by watching the moon rise. Not to mention the sounds of the waves as you fell asleep each night! One thing to note is that because of the steady breeze over the ocean, we did not have any mosquitos!!

We arrived just hours before an unexpected tropical storm! The following 24 hours were adventuresome to say the least! Jimbo was kind enough to drive us to an EXCELLENT restaurant and grocery store to stock up on supplies since we were obviously going to be rained in for awhile. He even let us raid the other unit for leftover booze and cooking spices so we could settle in and let the storm pass. Beach combing after the storm was a blast and we couldn't get enough of the incredible ocean views. The casa was comfortable and felt like we were staying in a friend's beach house. Nice little touches like bincoulars, games, Ipod dock, CD collection, beach towels, books, cable TV and free phone - you use it as if you were in the US to make "local" calls to family if needed. Plenty of filtered water with back-up bottles. Pool was cool but too cold to use. The house was VERY clean and the neighborhood was charming in an authentic Mexican neighborhood kind of way. Taxi's ranged from 20 to 40 pesos (we never figured out why it was more or less going to the same destination). Having always stayed near Centro, it was a nice break to experience something a little different. Some awesome things we saw/did? neighbor in the height of the storm on the roof (with his dog of course) reconnecting wires - who knows if it was electricity or cable but it was riveting to watch. Big iguanas in the backyard eating tortillas we threw. Chickens next door eating tortillas we threw. gekos galore. A very sweet and homeless lab mix dog named Brownie who rolled in something horribly stinky and followed us for two blocks until we escaped into a taxi. Leo, Jimbo & Karen's dog who came to visit one night and was swaddled in a beach wrap like he was a baby and everyone took turns holding him. Will definitely come back and recommend to others to stay here. I think the value for the what we received was exceptional. You could easily pay 2x more for a place like this on the beach in Florida.

Room Tip: Downstairs has two bedrooms with king and/or king/twins in second room - great for family members be...

This house is the best deal on the island. The beach is full of shells and the pool has an amazing view, The best restaurant on the island (Mango Cafe) is on the next street. If you want an authentic place this is it. Our 4 year old son played with the kids in the neighborhood and we felt totally safe all week. You won't find nicer people,

Casa Roca Caribe was the perfect Honeymoon getaway from my wife and myself. The hosts Jimbo & Karen were the ultimate - and exceeded our every whim! The Jimbo tour was well worth the time, and I highly reccommend it to people staying on the island ( and not only with Jimbo) as it gives a great "lay of the land". On our vacations, we tend to stay away from the highly touted resorts - and go for the relaxing, real life type place exactly like Casa Roca Caribe. If you work in a stressful environment or are looking to relax and enjoy a simpler life - Casa Roca Ciribe is for you! We will be back...

Our vacation to Casa Roco Caribe was more than we could have hoped for. Jimbo and Karen made our experience special and treated us like family. They were helpful, informative and the condo was one of the best places to stay on the island. We don't like the "hotel" scene and this was perfect. It was like we moved in and made it our home. The condo had everything we could possibly need and is located on one of the best spots on the island. Pictures cannot do this place justice. There is nothing like sitting in the hot tub listening to the ocean waves crash on the shore. The only downfall was that we couldn't stay longer.

We just returned from a fantastic trip to Isla Mujeres. Casa Roca Caribe was a fantastic place to stay, right on the water with the whole ocean crashing outside your bedroom window. Jimbo's tour was excellent and gave us a good idea of what we wanted to do while we were in Isla. The accomodations were very comfortable- loved the bed. Jimbo's right...you will sleep well here. We also appreciated how well-stocked the apartment was. Some of our favorite things were eating at the Mango Cafe, hiking down to Punta Sur, exploring on the beach, and swimming with the whale sharks ( a must!).

My family and I stayed for a week this June. Jimbo is a wonderful host and maintains a beautiful property. The patio is by far the best That I have ever had to sit and relax on. The beds are better than what I sleep on at home. The kitchen has everything you need not only to make a great meal but a cocktail as well. You are only a block away from one of the "must go" resturants Mango Cafe. In that same block is a little grocery store that has everything you need to make a great meal with mom and pop service that is lost here in the USA. We have stayed at several places on Isla as well many more in Mexico. Casa Carib is the best. They have raised the bar for service and acomadations. Hope to have the opporunity to stay there again.
